Head : Prof. Thomas Noel (See all members of the group)

The ICube Network Research Group investigates, designs and evaluates networking architectures and protocols, mainly within the framework of the new generation Internet and Ipv6.

The group is particularly interested in new network services such as mobility and data diffusion, and new technologies such as wireless networks and their impact on core networks (scalability) or access networks. This research has broad applications, such as embedded systems in vehicles or video broadcasting. The proposed solutions are validated either by simulation or implementation over local or internet testbeds. A large-scale open testbed, including mobile sensors, has been deployed as part of the french testbed SensLab.
